A Few Thoughts… Before… written by Big Virge 7/11/2015

….. American voters, go to war !!!!!
or, should that be, Trump and Hilary … ???

The war, for them, is almost over … Thankfully !!!

However, it’s been a very interesting lead up to one of the most, highly anticipated results, to a Presidential Election !!!

As many keep repeating, it’s a landmark election, especially after Barack Obama’s election as the, Huh Hmmm …..

First, Black President ….

According to whose version of history you believe … ?!?
… which could now be followed by the First, female President !

In the last week, the Chicago Cubs create history by coming back from 3-1 down against the Cleveland Indians, to win their first World Series in over 100 years, only to then have the Irish Rugby Union Team, do a similar thing against New Zealand, days later, 111 years in their case !!!!! Amazingly, after the Kiwis had gone on a record breaking, 18 game winning run …. only to give it up, with a first victory, for Ireland against them !

Anyone seeing the trend, and getting a little nervous, regarding the trend ?

Well, as both an Oakland Raiders and Liverpool FC supporter, the fact that on the weekend before the election, they both, for the first time, in quite some time, top their respective divisions ….. Liverpool, of course, much more recently, than the Raiders, however, the Raiders did just beat the current, Superbowl champions !!!!!

Okay so, is this the week of upsets, as most now seem to believe that the Trumpster, will finally get, ” Trumped “, by Americas’ voting populous.

I have never believed that he couldn’t win, but, after the, again, amazing revelation of a further, FBI investigation into Hilary’s emails, and the then withdrawal of said investigation, conveniently, days before final voting, one thing that does seem realistic, is that, ” The Trumpster’ “, may well be right, when he says, that this election could be rigged, however, I would suggest that it would NEED TO BE RIGGED, for his Ignorant Ass to win … !!!!!

As certain Facebook posts have suggested, I am grateful to him, for showing us a level of truth, in terms of how, ” his type “, of … ” White American “, thinks, behaves and acts, because nobody can sit there talking about chips on black peoples’ shoulders anymore, and that prejudice, bigotry & racism, are just figments of our imaginations’ ….

…. that we are, even in 2016, STILL suffering inequalities, in how we’re treated, as if the last 12 months of US Policing hasn’t given enough credence to substantiate, such arguments … !!!!!

I have said before, and will say it again, black people need to recognise the kind of thinker, Hilary Clinton, has proven herself to be, and that, hugs with Jay Z, Queen Bey’, and support from Mr. Obama, should not indicate to them, that she has, any allegiance, or, Real Interest, in the struggles, of ……

Poor Black People !?!

Margaret Sanger is the name I will say again, and suggest, that people look for what Madame Clinton, has had to say about her.

It is also quite interesting to see the level of Global Stock Market Activity, that indicates that, Mr. Trump’s arrival in the Oval Office, would seemingly have HUGE ramifications, for world economies and currency values … !!!!!

Nothing to turn your nose up at !

I care not, who they vote in, from the perspective of having no particular wish to return to the US, in any kind of a hurry, however, as has been the case with Brexit’, I do recognise the importance of this election.

Trumps’ references in the last couple of days, to a Brexit’ type, shock victory, is NOT … that far fetched, if you log & think on the aforementioned events, however, Hilary winning in conjunction with Theresa Mays’ arrival at number 10 Downing Street, may also not be quite so coincidental … ???

It’s really gonna be, quite the night !!!

Will all the negative stuff about Trump, be enough to get Hilary in, or will her apparent indiscretions, via her email accounts, amongst other things, be what swings the voters minds ???

White America, in my humble opinion, are not so far from being prepared to let Donald make … ” America Great Again ” …

or should that be … KKK again … ?!?

Just a question, not an accusation, although it’s clear who the KKK want to win … !!!!!

So, many things going on, including a judicial decision that has stirred the Brexit pot, across the water …. leaves me thinking that, nothing in this election for US President is quite as it seems ….. or beyond happening ….

So, for now, i’m gonna leave it that, as voting begins to decide the winner,
and I listen to a young black male from America, in a documentary about the US Election, explain how he thinks that, Liberalism does not serve black people well …. and how that should seemingly, outweigh, Donalds’ rather inflammatory comments about race ….

…. to then listening to some white supremacists, who then throw the curve ball, that indicates that, voting for Clinton, means a vote to continue what America has been going through for the last 30 years, and a continuance of the status quo ….. which for the feminists, railing on about Trump, also affirms her standing alongside a confirmed, Liar and Cheater, who showed ….

What exactly … ???

A TOTAL, lack of respect for his wife ….

It is amazing to hear people speak about this election, as if it’s solely about, upholding, ” American Values ” …. whatever they are … ???

One has to wonder what will happen …. and how this subsequently, will affect the world …..

Which is why, before we get to finally, know the score ….

I’m dropping a few ….
of my thoughts …. before ….

Bless Up People ….

The Virge out of here …..
for now ………………………………..

” Reason ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks …..

It’s that time of the month for some, Big Virge, Poetic Stuff ….

I am a long way from home currently, but it seems that, after the Paris attacks, Gatwick Terror alerts, and more gun massacres in the US, that, reasonable thought processes are being forsaken for, ” Gung Ho’ type “, reactionary responses.

So, as The Pope has been doing his thing in Africa, and Trump doing has been doing his … i.e.

“Running His Gums” …. in the US …..

I’m wondering, where the logic and reason is …. in peoples rhetoric currently ???

Well, it’s time for some reason, Big Virge Styled, that defies all these extremist type attitudes, and I don’t mean, ISIS, ISIL or any other type of group who is deemed to be wreaking havoc across the globe right now …..

Those who know, KNOW, they are far from being the only terrorists out there, in this world of ours …..

I am currently in New Zealand, funnily enough, YET ANOTHER, British Colony, in a place called Queenstown, also like Barbados, to the locals, known as you guessed it …. Little England, due to the volume of Brits who now, live and work here, where, as a Zimbabwe born farmer told me….

“When they came here, the Brits were bloody stupid !!!”

…. when speaking about certain agricultural policies, that they rather foolishly employed, that when thought about, were quickly proven to be as stupid, as much that is being spouted currently, by them and their apparently, ” Special Friends “, across the water !?!

Well, having managed to gain a little Maori culture, in my first few days here, it only seems fitting that I should, this month, share a piece that shows how much respect I have, not only for the GREAT, All Black Rugby team and World Cup Winners for 2015, but also, a culture whose warrior spirit, deals in more than reactionary responses to war …..

Thus, here is a poem that touches on that, and much much … more … !!!

In a time where we are seeing people act in very, irrational ways ….

Take some time out to listen to some thoughts based on, as said ….

Sumthin’ more, than talk of ignorance, terror and war ……

Another Hard Hitter from Supastition !!!!!

There are certain brands of … ” Terrorism ” … that don’t seem to garner quite the same level of disgust/attention, as others, and indeed, are perpetrated by those very same bodies/individuals, who are quick to label themselves as victims of such acts ….. when the shoe is on the other foot … !?!

So, before you get to caught up in the now, take a moment and think back, before suggesting these attacks are a disgrace to the human race and should not be tolerated …

Hmmm …. if only that was the case from the dawn of time ….

I wonder whether we’d have a very different world today … ???

I guess we’ll never know eh folks … ?!?

Well, I like most, do not condone acts of a terrorist nature, but, that opinion applies to ALL acts of terror, including those of the past, and the present, that should not be so easily dismissed, because the media couldn’t give a shit about those who don’t fit their politics, or, the ways, they, and their friends in high places, choose to live …..

Just remember …..

One mans’ TERRORIST is another mans’ FREEDOM FIGHTER !

just as one mans’ FREEDOM FIGHTER, is another mans’ TERRORIST !

RIP to those who have lost their lives this weekend, and condolences go to those who’ve lost loved ones, and my thoughts go out to those who have been injured in Paris …..

Annnnnndddd …….

EVERYWHERE ELSE … in the world, where such actions leave innocent people seriously injured or dead.

Enough said ….

I’ll let Supastition express some other things, that also need to be said … !!!!!

STOP THE VIOLENCE … & …

STOP THE … DOUBLE STANDARDS & IGNORANCE … !!!!!

Hard tune, video & lyrics, as ever, from … Mister Supastition.
